Local lawmakers rebuked over antics during late night debate

The Friday state House session opened with a rebuke from both House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz and Minority Leader Themis Klarides.  She said there was an act of disrespect directed at Representative Dubitsky during a debate Thursday night over revisions to the Trust Act.  Bethel Representative Raghib Allie-Brennan passing behind him with a potted plant, and Redding Representative Anne Hughes, another freshman, pausing to stare.  House Majority Leader Matt Ritter said the complaints were heard, but noted that disrespectful behavior is non-partisan.  During debate on banning plastic straws, Big Gulps were brought in and a lawmaker held his drink in front of him, tugging at the straw with his teeth.
